The food here was just amazing. The fried cheese they put in their dishes is sooooooo good. I had a Papas con pollo, potatoes cut into cubes, delicately spiced, mixed with vegetables and chicken and served in foil with fried cheese on top. Yum!

Once we had there tacos and tried lots of other places we kept going back. The arracherra and carnitas were our favorites. The papas are incredible as well. I could not get enough of the habanero onions, so good and spicy. The staff is super...More

Good size, and really really good ingredients! I'm vegetarian and they had a load of veggies for me. My husband eats everything and he was extremely happy with the beef filling. The beans and salsas were also amazing. Street seating and upstairs seating is it....More

I have it on very good local authority that El Itacate is "the" top taco place in town, but that's like saying that one location is the top pizza place in NYC. Easy to say, hard to prove, though our stomachs were very happy. Do...More

This is a delicious twist on your usual Mexican burrito, instead of being wrapped in a tortilla, it’s wrapped in Cheese and deep fried! Oh and the margaritas were pretty darn good too!

Not sure what to call the dish we had. It was amazing. Like a cheese burrito, melted cheese around chicken and veggies. Honestly one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten anywhere, and I have no idea what it was called.

Great experience, fun, friendly, prompt staff. Great Mexican Seafood, you shouldn't miss this place! This is our 3rd trip to Sayulita this year, and 1st time at El Itacate, it now is one of 3 places that are must haves when in town.

4.5 stars. Our waitress was great and helped explain the different options and gave us her recommendations. The beef tacos (we had two different kinds) and shrimp tacos were amazing! The chicken was ok, the fish was unimpressive. The agua frescas were great, and the...More
